IF that is correct for just the engine, we can get pretty serious. So let's clarify it one more time. Is that number JUST for the engine or what?

To be fair, a Bernie Bergman turbo engine can eat up all of that budget, and not leave any left over for the rest of the car, or importantly, the transmission.

I haven't checked, but does TransForm still do warrantied ProStreet bug transaxles? They used to be pretty inexpensive.
